Grants for Research in Conflict Studies from Berghof Foundation

Berghof Foundation for Conflict Studies funds qualified individuals, organisations and institutions doing cutting-edge research and reflective practice in conflict studies.
The three thematic interests below permit the foundation to take a more concentrated approach to what it sees as key strategic issues emerging in the field of conflict transformation. By focusing on these areas, the foundation wishes to support action research and reflective practice that identifies and elaborates fresh, creative paradigms for inclusive and integrated approaches that can enhance this field.

1. Peacebuilding and reconciliation in post-war societies
2. Transformation processes of non-state armed groups into political actors
3. Interactions between state and non-state actors in conflict transformation processes
